Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Honor Flight features significant grainy footage of WWII, including bombings, wounds being tended in field hospitals, and some graphic descriptions of the horrors of war, as well as a recurring photo of a starved (but alive) man in a Nazi concentration camp. It shows modern-day, terminally ill vets in hospital settings and has several intense emotional scenes about death, nostalgia, and heroism. There's some historical context regarding the importance of different battles, but the focus is largely on the lives of the living veterans, their families, and their desire to see the D.C. memorial before they die.
Graphic images of bombings, explosions, and other WWII footage. Some black-and-white shots of surgical footage. Some graphic discussions of "sawing off limbs" or "stitching people up," as well as some hospital scenes of modern-day terminally ill veterans. We repeatedly see a photo of a starved but living hostage in a Nazi concentration camp.
Remembering and respecting veterans, the value of history, volunteering, appreciating life, honoring military service, and respecting your elders.
